I have neither comment moderation nor word verification enabled on my comments.
Perhaps it's because my readership is so low, or I just have natural troll repellent, but in my almost year and a half of blogging I've only been spammed a couple of times and only trolled a couple of times.
I can understand the urge to filter comments, pre- posting, but what I CANNOT understand is those bloggers, and you know who you are, who feel the need to have BOTH! It's so easy to delete a comment you find offensive or inflammatory, WHY do you need both?
I don't think this post will actually CHANGE any one's mind, I just wanted to vent this morning. Blame it on my mood.
